How to Apply/Remove Disqus 2012 and Avoid Comments Count Override

Monday, October 29, 2012

As discussed previously about adding comments counter below post title on blogger and other platforms. I recently decided to use Disqus but faced an issue related to overriding of comments count. By default Disqus adds comments count below post body but since I was using comments counter below post title already, immediately after implementing Disqus on blogger it started showing me two comments counter one below post title and the other below post body. I tried to remove the code of comments count but it disappeared both of them.

I think I am the first who has learned this to do it on blogger blog because I searched the whole web but could not find any tweak to resolve the override issue of Disqus comments counts. But I was not disappointed what I did that I tried to understand the code and implemented it as I thought. Luckily for me it worked like a charm. One thing I would like to request here that DO NOT COPY IT please as it would really hurt me.

There are two parts and we have to do it one by one. So here is the simply tweak that will help you to remove the comment count of Disqus and keep the one that you need already on your blog.

As always Sign in to your Blogger Account, Go to Dashboard, Layout, Edit HTML, Expand Widget Templates. Make sure you backup your template and save a copy of it.

How to Fix the Override Issue of Disqus 2012 Comment Counter on Blogger

Find <div class='post-header'> and put following code immediately after it.

<!-- Disqus Comment Count Start-->

<div style='float:right'>
<a class='dsq-comment-count comment-link commentslink' style='background: no-repeat scroll top left;padding-left:25px;font-weight: bold;font-size:12px; bold;font:Veranda'
expr:href='data:post.url + &quot;#disqus_thread&quot;'/></div>
<!--Disqus Comment Count End-->

<font style='background:transparent no-repeat scroll top left;padding-left:0px;font-weight: bold;font-size:12px;'><data:post.dateHeader/></font> 
<span class='post-comment-link' style='Float:right;'>

  2. Working fine here on all browsers except on Internet Explorer. This has nothing to do with the implementation. Disqus simply don't support older versions of internet explorer than IE9. If you are having trouble with IE9 as well let me get back to you after I test it on IE9
